Research 



JNew Bedford Textile School has 
been hard pressed to produce machin- 
ists to fill the vacancies which are 
open at this moment. The shop has 
to turn out the spindles for the spin- 
ning of yarns such as seed hairs from 
plants of the genus Gossypium, the 
hair of animals, synthetic fibres such 
as nylon, vinyon, lanital, rayons, and 
numerous others. 

These yarns in turn fill the shut- 
tles which weave the cloth — cloth 
which is used by mankind as a pro- 
tection against weather, a protection 
which would be inconceivable in a 
world wholly independent of textiles. 

From the looms the cloth passes to 
the finishing department, which in- 
troduces the chemist. The chemist is 
usually found working over oddly 
shaped apparatus such as flasks, 
beakers, burettes, test-tubes, and the 
like. Analytical balances also play 
an important part in the analysis of 
chemicals. 

The microscope has made an im- 
portant niche for itself in the textile 
field. Here we can see an image 
magnified hundreds of times. We 
make use of this in the detection of 
fibres. 

These therefore are the tools which 
make New Bedford Textile School 
what it is today. Considering the 
three years which the class of 1942 
has spent at our alma mater, we are 
proud to present the fine record 
which the school has made to the 
outside world.

Theoretically and practically the New Bedford Textile School is at the top of 
the list. If academic subjects might be introduced here, there would be no better 
school of its kind to be found, as a B.S. degree would increase its popularity and 
student body. However, what there is to be found here is not to be looked down 
upon. 

There have been, until a few years past, three main day curriculas ; namely, 
Cotton Manufacturing, Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing, and Mechanical Course. 
For the past few years the Rayon Course has been gaining in popularity. The 
Girls' Course has acquired and expects to acquire more and more coeds. 

f[ The Cotton Manufacturing Course acquaints the student with the manufacture 
of yarn and the subsequent weaving of cloth from this yarn. The first two years 
are spent in acquiring the foundation of cotton manufacturing and the allied 
subjects. The third year is spent in making and weaving originals. Some 
microscopy is also taught so as to give the students some knowledge in identifying 
fibres. Three years of designing and analysis are also included in this course. 

\ The Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing Course is excellent for anyone who 
wishes to adopt either or all of these for his vocation. The first two years include 
a basic training for Chemistry and Dyeing. The third year is more advanced and 
includes the Finishing of Fabric. Many practical subjects as machine shop 
practice, economics, microscopy, etc., are included in this course. 

rX ]\ The Mechanical Course is recommended for mechanically-minded individuals. 

\ It is a two year course consisting principally of machine shop practice, drafting 

and electricity. 

fl The Rayon Preparation Course recently incorporated in the school, gives com- 
plete instruction in Rayon Preparation and Analysis, Weaving and Original 
Patterns as well as designing and other interesting subjects. 

ff The new Girls' Course trains the girls to be laboratory technicians, designers, 
etc. The course is of two year duration. 

jf Due to prevailing conditions the school has adopted Nutrition and Defense 
Classes. The Defense Classes are held in Special Night Classes, and the attendance 
boasts many women students. 








ANTONE RODIL 



Dedication . . . 



To pay a little tribute to his undying generosity, 
to his helpfulness in all our problems, both as an in- 
structor, and moreover a friend, to thank him for his 
guidance throughout our three year stay, in apprecia- 
tion of his diligent and resourceful manner, we, the 
Class of 1942 are both proud and honored to dedicate 
this edition of The Fabricator to

GENERAL 







Carter 



Lemaire 



The '43 General Class is the abbrieviated version of "We three are all 
alone," but wait till next year. Carter will then be singing, "I'm lonesome and 
lonely." 



CARTER — He is going as strong as 
ever. Still can't figure out how he 
can stay awake in school after work- 
ing all night. He certainly makes 
the statement of "You can't do two 
things at once and do them good" 
look sick. 



LEMAIRE — Ronny does very well in 
school, and even better than that 
outside. After the term is over, 
Ronny is slated to enter the Navy 
as an air cadet, having passed all re- 
quirements. Best of luck to you, 
fellow.

CHEMISTRY 



CLASS OF 1943 



BEAN — Never says much, but this is 
contrary to his actions. He has re- 
cently joined the Marines. 

HOUGHTON— Harold seems to be 
doing much better in getting to 
school on time this year. 

WALDER — They say he knows all 
the girls. Maybe it pays well to 
work in a drug store. 

\YH ALLEY— Don is the "killer" of 
this class. He never misses his Fri- 
day night jam session. 

CHASE — One of the jolliest members 
of the class. What happened to that 
pile of junk you used to drive 
"Babe" ? 



MALICK, J. — Quite the ladies' man, 
ask him sometimes. How do you do 
it, Jake? 

MALICK, D. — I guess he's trying to 
cramp Jake's style, the way he 
haunts the first year girls. 

SEDERHOLM— Bert did very good 
on the basketball second team this 
year, should be a top first-stringer 
next year. 

MANCHESTER— Still as handsome 
as ever. Well that proves that they 
grow nice things out in the country. 

ENTWISTLE— Bill doesn't look as 
happy as he did last year. Could the 
absence of the two lady chemists 
have anything to do with it?

Chapman Seigal Silva Wilbur Abisahla Thoen Anderson Bertman Pinault 
Sullivan Drake Kiluk Mulvey Santos 



ABISAHLA— "Big Stoop" — Best to 
stay on the good side of this fellow. 
He's the biggest boy in school. 

DRAKE — He should be way ahead of 
his class since he attended a half 
year last term. 

KILUK — "Tiny" has a natural ability 
in machine shop practice. 

LETENDRE— "Connie" works hard 
lifting weights. You should put 
some of this labor in your school 
work. 

MULVEY— -The big head from across 
the river. He's a sad case. 

SIEGAL — He thinks he sings like a 
lark but it sounds more like a sea 
gull. 

PINAULT— He's quite the basketball 
player; also Drake's stooge. 



SULLIVAN— Very efficient. He likes 
the first year class so much that he'd 
like to take it over. 

THOEN — He may become a future 
Bob Feller. 



You might think that 



CHAPMAN 

all he does is fool around, but take 
a look at his marks. 

ANDERSON— This boy is a profi- 
cient golfer, keep it up kid. He's a 
specialist. 

BERTMAN— Better known as "eight- 
ball." He must have been vaccin- 
ated with a phonograph needle. 

SILVA — Another specialist. He's a 
soda "jerk" at Browne's Drug 
Store. 

SANTOS— Does he live in Mattapoi- 
sett or does he just hunt there?

CLASS OF '43 



GIRLS' SPECIAL CLASS 



BETTY CUNNINGHAM — We've 
come to the conclusion that Betty 
gets her vivaciousness from the foun- 
tain of youth. "Lovely to look at, 
delightful to know," she's the fair 
charmer in our class. 

JOSEPHINE GILSON— "Jo" is our 
only out-of-towner, coming from 
Taunton. She beguiles us all with 
her winsome smile and sparkling 
eyes. 

EDITH HUBBARD— Edith, another 
of the specials coming into school 
last semester, is also a very quiet 
lass but has a good sense of humor. 



LILLIAN DAUPLAISE — Lil, with 
the snappy green eyes, always has an 
answer that brings a smile, and is 
Textile's most ardent fan. 

FRANCES LAWRENCE — Fran, a 
quiet lass, is one of our specials who 
came into school this last semester. 
She is already well liked for her sin- 
cerity. 

BLANCHE HARDY— When Blanche 
smiles, it is as though a ray of sun- 
light shines in our midst, and Itt 
witty outbursts lend a spicy rote to 
our conversations.

Queene 



GEORGE BOUFFIER— George, the 
man from south of the border is 
more American than most Ameri- 
cans. Quote George : The United 
States is terreaffic. 

LOUIS QUEEN— Louie is a hep cat 
who pounds the ivories at a local jive 
joint. Also does some homework in 
his spare time. 

EDMUND TAFT — Screwball and 
blues singer who can drown out any 
loom or collection of looms with his 
Calona yell. 

RAYMOND MORRIS— Class athlete 
who is our contribution to the sport 
world. It is he we claim who lifted 
Textile School out of our bad slump 
this year. What a man ! ! 



NORMAN COBB— What a long tail 
our cat has. Cobb is fastest man on 
the slide rule and sweet talk that 
ever sprouted wings. 

RUSSELL SCHRAM — Speak of 
Cobb and who do we see. The man 
with the wavy hair and collection of 
beautiful girls? 

MORRIS FINGER— Proving that big 
things don't come in small packages. 
If we had a track team Finger would 
star on the 100 yd. dash. It's the 
momentum — like the caissons, he 
goes rolling along. 

DONALD JASON— The fellow with 
the million dollar smile. And why 
not, 'cause he's got a river between 
him and the rest of these illustrious 
students.

tanoga choo choo. The locomotive for 
Maynard.

CHARLES KNOWLTON — Peahopper 
Knowlton — Eyedropper at 40 paces — 
Beware.

better with someone else's equipment. 

WALTER JENKINS— Always willing to

HARRY GRUNDY— The class competi- 
tion to Bob Hope in quarter time. 



GORDON BRADLEY— I wonder if he 
will get credit for being in the nutri- 
tion class. 

JAMES CATON— One of the clanny 4 
who could put a pound of burette 
grease to use. 

BERNARD CARTER— No matter where 
he travels he can always find a 
"cousin". 

HAROLD WILLIAMS— One of the most 
industrious lads in class but one won- 
ders what would happen if he fell 
down on the way home. 

GENE SULLIVAN— A lecture class seat 
is like a sleeping tablet to him. 

HENRY ALBIEZ— Always willing to 
tell you where everything is even if 
he doesn't know himself. 

WALTER CLARK— A walking tool room 
when he has his black suit on.

The first event was a smoker of Beta and Gamma Chapter on October 21 at 
the New Bedford Hotel. Morris Finger, Louis Queene, James Malick, Donald 
Malick, and Gilbert Siegal were accepted as members after the usual proceedings. 
The induction took place at a theatre dinner party in Providence. 

Perhaps the most colorful event of the year was the convention in New 
York which was well attended by Beta men. 

Trips to Boston and Providence and theatre parties made the year eventful. 

No men will be lost this year and a more active chapter is expected next year.

ACTIVITIES 1941-1942 

Delta Chapter started the season's activities by holding open house at the 
New Bedford Hotel on October 15. Five new members were accepted into the 
brotherhood. 

The winter season brought forth two spectacular basketball games with Phi 
Psi. Delta Kappa suffered one defeat and was victorious in the other engagement. 
The honors went to Carl Mattson, who played excellent ball in both encounters. 

Several new members attended the annual convention held in Boston. A 
scorching good time was had by all. The affair left many fond memories, and was 
the outstanding event of the year.

ACTIVITIES 

During the past year, the Chapter has admitted eighteen new members 
which brought our total of active membership to thirty-two. We have lost one 
Brother to military service, Treasurer Jean Phaneuf. He has been commissioned 
as a Second Lieutenant at Fort Bragg, N. C. 

As for our activities, the Chapter is well pleased with the numerous good 
times had by all throughout the year. We have sponsored several informal parties 
held at the Fraternity House for the active members which were enjoyed by 
everyone. *| 



In the sports field, Beta Chapter had two basketball games and also a bowl- 
ing match with the rival fraternity boys of Delta Kappa Phi. We are proud to say 
that Phi Psi waas the victor in each encounter.

Won 2 — Lost 9 

Last year's baseball nine was truly a 
victim of bad breaks. The boys played 
good ball and deserved to win more 
games. 

In the season opener with Went- 
worth, the Bostonians collected 17 hits 
from Goodwin to win 12-2. Out- 
classed, our boys did not give up, and 
showed good spirit. 

The first game with our Fall River 
rivals was decidedly a pitcher's duel, 
with Andy pitching a fine game. Gar- 
della's double in the 6th clinched the 
game for Durfee 5-4. 



Textile got 9 runs in the first inning 
in the Becker game at Worcester, but 
the college boys proved to be good 
stickers and Textile fell 14-11. 

Jerry Allain spoiled Doug Menard 
of Voke from twirling a no-hitter. Jer- 
ry smashed two hits but all in vain. 
Textile lost 3-2. 

The final game with V was a dif- 
ferent story. Poitras pitched a 5-hit- 
ter and Allain was on a batting spree 
again. The four runs in the sixth inn- 
ing was the deciding factor. Textile 
winning 7-3. 

Although our boys outhit and out- 
fielded the Lowell team in their park, 
three costly errors in the 2nd frame 
proved their downfall. Goodwin lost 
a 5 hitter 8-3. 

Textile journeyed to Boston for their 
next heart-breaking tilt. Senesac came 
through with a wonderful 4-hit game, 
but poor baserunning was disastrous 
as only one run was derived from 11 
hits. Wentworth eeked three runs 
over to win 3-1. 



New Bedford Textile

Hyannis visiited us for the first time 
and collected 16 hits from Senesac to 
give them a 9-3 victory. Mellor and 
Allain hatted well for Textile. 

We avenged an earlier defeat by 
Lowell when they played on our field. 
Cashing in on all the breaks, and led 
by Mogilniki, Allain, Mellor, and 
Poitras, Textile won 5-3. 

Hyannis made it two in a row when 
they beat us 6-2 in their park. Sene- 



sac allowed nine hits, but the 4th inn- 
ing decided the game. Hilditch and 
Allain batted well for Textile. 

Textile ended the season by losing 
the toughest one of them all. Becker 
pushed two 9th-inning runs across the 
plate to take an 8-6 decision. Good- 
win started the game but was relieved 
by Senesac who pitched good ball ex- 
cept for that last frame.

The basketball team started the season with a new mentor, Francis Clynes. 
Despite the fact that there were very few veterans left over from the preceeding 
season, Mr. Clynes came up with a small but scrappy squad. 

With Gene Mogilnicki and Steve Lehman the only varsity veterans, Clynes 
built the team around them. The remaining vacancies were capably filled by Don 
Mellor, Danny Donovan, Jean Senesac, and Walt Jenkins. 

The team went through the season with a record of five wins against sixteen 
losses. What the boys possessed in ability and fight, they lacked in height, and 
their spirit in all of their games won them the respect of their opponents and their 
schoolmates. 

Several of the games were lost by only a small margin, the heartbreaker of 
the season being a 38-33 overtime loss to a strong Bridgewater quintet. 

The final game with Vocational, which the boys were pointing for was a 
real thriller, with the final outcome in doubt until the final whistle. This victory 
attoned greatly for the otherwise season of reverses. 

Our heartiest congratulations to Mr. Clynes for his untiring coaching, and 
to Gene, Steve, Don, Danny, Jean, and Walt for their fine displays of fast, courage- 
ous, and artful ball handling. The loss of all these boys by graduation except 
Jenkins, will be felt next year, but we feel confident that Textile teams will always 
be as aggressive and talented as this year's aggregation. 

Though this may well be our last season for the duration the sportsmanship 
shown by our team will always be remembered as one of the highlights of our 
school life. Winning is not everything ; a good loser is always appreciated. Boy, 
are we appreciated, heh, heh.

RAYON FIGHTS 
ON TWO FRONTS! 




WHEN A MIRACLE of mist helped 
the B. E. F. escape from under the 
canopy of bombs at Dunquerque . . . 
Washington quickly threw the switch 
that sent a National Defense program 
into high gear. 

Straight to the army posts and air 
fields went the industry that previously 
had been associated with apparel. From 
the laboratories of American Viscose 
Corporation came a tough new yarn for 
tire cords of Rayon for the mammoth 
tires that bring flying fortresses safely 
through 3-point landings. Tires to take 
4-ton combat cars across rugged terrain. 



Rayon serves on another front— the eco- 
nomic front. As- silk, wool and linen im- 
ports were drastically curtailed, Ameri- 
can Viscose research put rayon to work 
in new ways to help maintain American 
standards of living. Beautiful dresses, 
lovely draperies, fine handkerchiefs and 
table cloths for everybody . . . Rayon 
helps us keep them. 

This is why 18,000 and more Ameri- 
cans—working in seven plants located in 
three states— will help the American Vis- 
cose Corporation maintain its position 
as the world's largest producer of rayon.

WITH EVERY S & W MACHINE — 

77 YEARS of EXPERIENCE 

A niodern knitting machine is not something built overnight. It is a compli- 
cated mechanism with hundreds of large and small parts, the design or com- 
position of any one of which may fundamentally affect the performance of the 
whole machine. Studying the composition, design and manufacture of each 
of these parts and adapting them to each other to obtain the most efficient 
results has been the occupation of Scott & Williams for 77 years. Surely, 
there is no substitute for such long experience — it is one of the reasons why 
S & W machines are bought with confidence and used with the assurance 
that they will produce the best possible results in knitting.

REVERE TEXTILE PRINT ROLLS 

A New Bedford Product Famous for a Hundred Years 



For more than a century the Taunton-New 
Bedford division of Revere Copper and Brass 
Incorporated has been making textile print rolls. 
As a result of this long experience the Revere 
organization is in a unique position to know and 
understand practical textile printing problems 
and how to meet them with rolls best adapted 
to give efficient, economical service. 

Textile print roll requirements are severely 
exacting. The copper must be homogeneous, 
free from imperfections, impurities, hard spots, 
strata, blow holes. It must be evenly, precisely 
tempered, sufficiently ductile to be "picked up" 
by the engraver's tool, yet sufficiently hard to 
enable the edges of the engraving to stand, 




FOUNDED BY PAUL REVERE IN 1801 



without becoming rounded or burred, through 
long service. 

The rolls must be perfectly concentric; they 
must be straight within close tolerance limits; 
they must be strong enough to drive a heavy 
printing cylinder by friction; tough enough to 
withstand repeated pushing on and off mandrel; 
and must have the smoothness and texture re- 
quired to prevent the edges of the engraving 
from being eroded by the "doctor" blades. 

The standard, most economical, roll is the 
solid wall copper roll. Rolls of this type can be 
repeatedly re-engraved, the old engraving being 
turned off. An average size solid wall copper 
roll should permit at least 25 such turn-offs, 
thus affording 26 new engraving surfaces during 
its life. 

Also available are cheaper rolls, "re-built" 
by drawing new copper tubes over cores con- 
sisting of old turned-down rolls. However, these 
are more likely to cause trouble, and in the end 
are definitely more expensive than the solid 
wall rolls. 

Revere specialists with many years of ex- 
perience in this field are at your service to 
assist you in specifying and obtaining rolls best 
adapted to serve your individual requirements. 
Revere ability to render capable service of this 
kind is perhaps best attested by the fact that a 
large proportion of all textile print rolls in use 
throughout the United States today are of 
Revere make.

— with the Electron Microscope 



The first commercially built electron 
microscope ever placed in service in 
American Industry has been in use 
for several months at our Stamford 
Laboratories. 



Here is an example of the astound- 
ing magnification obtainable with 
this instrument. Some bacteria are 
so small it would take a thousand 
of them to make a single fine line 
on the head of a pin. Yet under 
the electron microscope a single one 
of these can be made to appear the 
size of a small cigar. 



In the field of dyes, the electron 
microscope clearly reveals the shape 
and uniformity of the tiniest parti- 
cles — supplements with concrete 
evidence our best scientific conjec- 
tures about factors that affect their 
performance qualities in actual use. 



We are looking ahead of today's 
difficulties in ways such as this, in 
order to make Calco dyes consis- 
tently more dependable and eco- 
nomical.
